Rangel convicted on 11 of 13 ethics charges

Rep. Charlie Rangel has been convicted on 11 of 13 ethics charges against him, the Committee on Standards of Official Conduct announced Tuesday.

“We did achieve consensus,” Committee Chair Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif., said.

Lofgren said two of the charges were rolled into one. Most were voted on unanimously but one charge received a 7 to 1 vote. The panel is bipartisan, made up of eight members.

The committee will now meet to decide Rangel’s punishment, which could range from censure to expulsion.
